The decade-old maker movement has morphed into fully fledged maker education this fall.
Maker-centered learning is booming across the country, as kids return to school after being engaged in a vast variety of activities at camps, museums, science centers and community centers. Teachers, too, are returning from workshops in which they learned from engineers, programmers and other STEM (science, technology, engineering and math)related professionals.
One of the greatest benefits is that students are typically excited about learning in a maker space environment.
And isn’t that what every parent hopes happens for their child during this school year?
